Verse 1:
        C               F2         C              G/B
Rock of Ages, cleft for me, let me hide myself in Thee;
        Am            F2              C       G/B        C
Let the water and the blood from Your wounded side which flow'd
        Am      G/B    C              F2                C
Be for sin the double cure, save from wrath and make me pure;
             Am        G/B          C             F2              G
Cleanse from guilt and cleanse from sin, white as snow and pure within.
   Chorus:
           Am              F2         C              G/B
   Rock of Ages, cleft for me, let me hide myself in Thee.
           Am              F2         C      G/B     C
   Rock of Ages, cleft for me, let me hide myself in Thee.
[1.2.4.]
        F  C  G/B  Am  F  C  G/B  C
Verse 2:
        C            F2            C              G/B
Nothing in my hand I bring, simply to the cross I cling;
       Am              F2                C      G/B      C
Naked, come to You for dress;  helpless, look to You for grace;
        Am     G/B      C             F2            C
Foul, I to the fountain fly: wash me, Saviour, or I die.
       Am          G/B   C             F2             G
All my works could not atone, You must save, and You alone.
Verse 3:
         C                  F2             C                   G/B
While I draw this fleeting breath, when my eyes shall close in death,
       Am               F2             C       G/B      C
When I soar to worlds unknown, see You on Your judgment throne;
        Am         G/B     C            F2             C
Then my eyes shall see the King and the glories of His heav'n,
        Am       G/B     C             F2             G
There behold You face to face, saved forever by Your grace.

Rock of ages, cleft for me
Let me hide myself in Thee;
Let the water and the blood
From Your wounded side which flow'd
Be for sin the double cure
Save from wrath and make me pure;
Cleanse from guilt and cleanse from sin,
White as snow and pure within.

Rock of Ages cleft for me,
Let me hide myself in Thee.
Rock of Ages, cleft for me,
Let me hide myself in Thee.


Nothing in my hand I bring,   
Simply to the cross I cling;   
Naked, come to You for dress;   
Helpless, look to You for grace;   
Foul, I to the fountain fly:   
Wash me, Savior, or I die.   
All my works could not atone,   
You must save, and You alone.

While I draw this fleeting breath,   
When my eyes shall close in death,   
When I soar to worlds unknown,   
See You on Your judgment throne;   
Then my eyes shall see the King   
And the glories of His heaven,   
There behold You face to face,   
Saved forever by Your grace.
